Pope Field was established 1918. As of 2006, Pope airbase units began complying with Congress’ Base Realignment and Closure act. Pope airbase was realigned under Fort Bragg. Additionally, the law outlined changes in structure and relationships of remaining USAF units at Fort Bragg. Several units were relocated and 43d Operations Group was redesignated 43d Airlift Group. In 2011, a major portion of the BRAC process was completed as Pope Airbase was renamed Pope Army Airfield and returned to Fort Bragg.

Current operators:
- USAF 43rd Airlift Wing operating C-130
- USAF 24th Special Tactics Squadron 24th STS provides specops airmen for the Joint Special Operations Command, including Combat Controllers, Special Operations Weather Technicians, Pararescuemen, and Tactical Air Control personnel.
